Center for Death Penalty for Repeat Rapists

Union Govt which is drawing flak from opposition parties for diluting Justice Verma recommendations on women protection, is contemplating death penalty for repeat offenders.

The provisions of Central Govt ordinance on sexual assault laws put the repeat offenders too in the rarest of the rare category which can attract maximum punishment of death penalty.

Finance Minister speaking along with Manish Tewari says “Death has also been prescribed as the maximum punishment in the case of a second conviction for the offence of sexual assault or aggravated sexual assault”.
